Small Renovations to Make Before Selling Your Home

If you know you’re going to sell your home in the next few months, it may seem pointless to invest even more money into it. But is that really the case?

It turns out, some renovations can make your home more appealing to potential buyers and increase its value — just make sure you’re investing in the right places.

Update Your Home Before Selling

Add a fresh coat of paint.

Looking for minor projects that will pack a major punch? Paint is a great, and relatively inexpensive, way to make your home look fresh, clean, and more modern. If your home is currently painted with a dark color, choosing a lighter one can also make the space feel larger.

Make minor renovations to your bathroom.

Bathrooms are a priority for many homebuyers, but don’t assume that you need to completely gut your bathroom to make it more appealing. Enhance the resale value of your home by:

  • Fixing minor problems, like leaks and water stains.
  • Re-caulking the tub.
  • Upgrading your vanity and mirror.
  • Replacing fixtures, like faucets, cabinet handles, and showerheads.

Pay special attention to the kitchen.

Kitchens are the heart of the home, so it makes sense that this room is a high priority for potential buyers. In addition to cosmetic changes, like updating your cabinets and hardware, you should also consider upgrading to energy-efficient appliances.

Finish the basement.

While it’s true that unfinished basements provide a lot of storage space, today’s homeowner is looking for livable square footage. Finishing your basement gives the next homeowner a place to relax with family, entertain friends, or work from home.
